Habemus Papem

13 Mar

We have a Pope! Today, with the whole Universal Church, we waited for the white smoke to tell us we have a new Pope. At first we could not connect on the internet to watch it live. Finally, we were able to watch the announcement of the new Pope with the help of a friend from Poland who shared the transmission from her TV through FaceTime. We were happy to hear that Pope Francis I is from the Americas and was humble enough to ask us first to pray a blessing over him before he gave us his first apostolic blessing.

    I rejoice with all my Franciscan friends in the election of Pope Francis I. The intellect of Ignatius and the heart of Francis , we couldn’t ask for more. Praise God!

    Sr. Marilyn, I thought of you when I heard that our new pope is named Francis. All the Felicians must be so thrilled. St. Francis is close to my heart, too, after attending Felician college and learning so much about him. We will be blessed indeed if Pope Francis has even some of the qualities of St. Francis. : )
